Selected companies will provide cyber security products for businesses to enhance their digital security position on Met-founded centre’s marketplace


A joint venture founded by the Metropolitan Police and the City of London Police is trying to help organisations stay safe as they grow online.

The London Digital Security Centre, which operates in partnership with private industry and academia to support small and medium-sized enterprises’ digital innovations enhancement and protection against cyber attacks, has detailed the winners of its ‘Dragons Den’ style competition that will be showcased as market leading products on the centre’s MarketPlace.

The selection process began on May 3 and saw over 400 digital security companies competing with 25 being called for interview at the end of June.

The 15 companies selected include APMG, Assuria, BAE Systems, Data2Vault, Data Eliminate, e2e-assure, Estatom, Fortitude, iCyber-Security, Intruder, Performanta, PhishMe, ThinkingSafe, Yubico and YUDU Sentinel.

Participation in the competition was by invitation only. Companies were required to prove a good track record of independent analyst recommendations, customer references, market leadership through industry awards, and market share.

Centre chief executive John Unsworth said, “We aim to partner with between one and two market leading providers in each sub-category of digital security services. Those invited for interview were asked a series of in-depth questions about how their products deliver digital security to business.”
